An accident of architecture has placed Pisa upon the tourist map along with such evocative names as Rome, Florence, Galileo and Fibonacii, to say nothing of Buozzi and Giovanni. As the venue for the 5th International Conference on Advanced Robotics, ICAR, Pisa has an atmosphere that is as far removed from sensor fusion and mobile robotics, as Los Angeles is from Italian Renaissance art. Yet this contrast serves only to emphasise the technological steps made, and being made, in many areas of robotics.
